(“Chegg” or the “Company”) (NYSE: CHGG) in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California on behalf of a class consisting of investors who purchased or otherwise acquired Chegg securities between July 30, 2018 through September 25, 2018, both dates inclusive (the “Class Period”), seeking to recover damages caused by Defendants’ violations of the federal securities laws and to pursue remedies under Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”) and Rule 10b-5 promulgated thereunder.
